Item 1 Apologies for absence: Cllrs Moore, Scobie & Le0
Item 2 Public Speaking Period: None
Item 3 Plans and Planning Matters
a. PA18/04897 (and PA18/04901 Listed Building application). Application (and Listed Building Consent) for the proposed replacement of front veranda. The Crown Inn, Fore Street, Goldsithney. St. Austell Brewery Co Ltd. It was proposed by Cllr Jago that the Parish Council objects to the application due to harm to a listed building and its setting within the conservation area (section 12 NPPF). The council is however supportive of the need to repair this heritage asset but would wish to see a timber finish and a design which maintains the veranda’s proportions and symmetry. This was seconded by Cllr Griffiths and carried unanimously, but with the rider (“Cllr Nicholas’ Rider”) that Cllr Nicholas supports the motion on the basis of the information now available but reserving the right to change her decision at a later date if further information comes to light.
b. PA18/05115. Outline planning permission with some matters reserved: construction of two new detached dwellings (4-bed), 2 storey high with access off Red Lane. Land NNE of Red Lane House, Red Lane, Rosudgeon. Mr. Ian Jarvis Porthminster Beach View. It was proposed by Cllr Taylor, seconded by Cllr Groves and carried unanimously, but subject to Cllr Nicholas’ Rider that the Parish Council objects to the application on the grounds that
1. It would be harmful to the character, appearance and setting of Red Lane.
2. It cannot be considered infill as the gap in the frontage is large and in itself adds to the character of Red Lane.
3. It is contrary to the Parish Council’s developing Neighbourhood Plan which identifies Red Lane as a quiet lane which retains the local character and is an asset to the World Heritage area. It is also outside of the proposed settlement boundaries of either Perran Downs or Rosudgeon and is an important gap between the two settlements.
4. The Parish has exceeded its minimum requirement for market homes consents and has identified more suitable sites which would cause less harm should further development be required.
c. PA18/05063. General pruning required. In interest of both trees and owners residence. The house is in excessive shading due to size of trees. Jamara, Grove Lane, Perran Downs, Goldsithney. Mr. Van Elvin Courchene. It was proposed by Cllr Groves that the Parish Council objects to the application due to lack of detail of the proposed works and requests the applicants are recommended to take professional advice on the level and nature of any work to the trees. This was seconded by Cllr Strawson and carried unanimously, subject to Cllr Nicholas’ Rider
d. PA18/05455. Outline application with all matters reserved for the construction of 5 detached two storey dwellings on vacant land. Land at Red Lane, Rosudgeon. Mr. Cattran PKJ Properties Ltd. It was proposed by Cllr Taylor that the Parish Council objects to this application on the basis that there has been no consultation with the Parish Council on access, design and amenity and subject to these matters being agreed, and the footpath along the A394 being improved, the Parish Council has no objection in principle to the development of the site. This was seconded by Cllr Groves and carried by 6 votes in favour with Cllr Jago abstaining, and subject to Cllr Nicholas’ Rider
e. PA18/05559. Land and garage north of 21 St. Petry, Goldsithney. Demolition of single garage and construction of detached dwellinghouse. Mrs. Elaine Newman. It was proposed by Cllr Strawson that the Parish Council objects to the application on the following grounds:
1. Overdevelopment. The proposed dwelling would be lacking in amenity with the built form taking up almost all of the available plot leaving no garden.
2. There is insufficient in curtilage parking and garage provision which will lead to increased congestion on the junction with Gears Lane.
3. The proposed height of the development is out of keeping with the area where two storey homes predominate. This was seconded by Cllr Griffiths and carried unanimously, subject to Cllr Nicholas’ Rider
f. Any others received by the time of the meeting on 9th July 2018. None
It was noted that the following planning permissions had been granted:
a. PA18/03764. Mr. Toby Clark. Church Farm House, Perranuthnoe. Monterrey cypress – T1 – crown lifting by removal of various branches back to main stem and pruning to give 1 metre clearance from BT wire.

4a Councillors Reports:
Councillor Nicholas’ Report.
Cllr Nicholas reported that she has a list of various outstanding matters that she will be taking up over the coming days with the relevant Officers at Cornwall Council. She is also investigating concerns with the Cherry Sales on the A394, with signage being placed on the Henfor roundabout and with the vehicle being parked insufficiently far into the lay-by.
4b Other Councillors’ Reports
• Raised the concerns of several parishioners in Tregurtha View about the fact that trees and hedges hadn’t been trimmed and that thick brambles were overhanging the tarmac walkways. Cllr Nicholas said that she would investigate the situation with Cornwall Council.
• Wished to record his thanks for the good work to the Henfor roundabout.
Cllr Groves advised that, as the Double Yellow Lines notices had been posted, there was to be a meeting of Perranuthnoe residents in the Church Room shortly.
Cllr Tremelling raised his ongoing concern over the rusting on the Tower Bridge in the playground. Whilst it is not an immediate danger, he is aware that galvanised replacements have been sent to South West Play. The clerk was instructed to press them to have the work done.
Cllr Taylor raised the concern of a Parishioner about the derelict, incomplete houses next to Courtlands. Cllr Nicholas has this in hand, having reported the matter to Enforcement and to the Head of the Planning Service, to whom she will be sending photographs of the site.
• Reported on ongoing conversations with a landowner in Perranuthnoe over issues relating to parking
• Read out a report from Cllr Moore concerning the planning application at St. James, in the following terms: “I attended the West Planning Committee with a resident from Manor Farm Close to oppose the planning application at St James. The Council’s original objection had been related to the history of the site and its position in the conservation area. The applicant agent subsequently suggested access through Manor Farm Close where there is a small play area and already parking difficulties and in my and Sue’s opinion was a highway safety concern. As it was supported by Highways it was overwhelming approved. It has been subsequently revealed that the approved planning for Manor farm Close (copied below) from which the highway was adopted has parking spaces over the area opposite no 19 where the entrance is proposed. I am at a loss to understand why highways were not aware of this. I think this one will be ongoing.”
4c Neighbourhood Plan
Cllr Strawson read out Cllr Moore’s report in the following terms: “
1. We are still waiting the report on Landscape Characteristics from Kath Statham at Cornwall Council and as this forms part of James Evans work this is delaying our public consultation sessions. I am chasing Kath as it is now 3 months late.
2.To keep the momentum going I have met with James Evans with a view to the Parish Council commissioning him to carry out further work to progress the plan. He has responded positively and I hope to have a quote for the August meeting
3.I sent under separate cover a report on the consultation about settlement boundaries, mostly positive but with a small number of queries. This will be on the agenda in August, but if any councillor has queries please let me know.
4.I have spoken to the Charter fair about a stall in Fore Street on the morning of the Fair. I will be there but would appreciate a couple more volunteers”
Item 5 Minutes of the last meeting:
It was proposed by Cllr Strawson and seconded by Cllr Jago that the Minutes of the Meeting held on 11th June 2018 be signed. This was unanimously approved, but with the two councillors who had not been present at that meeting abstaining.
Item 6 Matters brought forward from last meeting:
a. Plan for St. Piran’s Hall. It was decided to defer this to the next meeting
b. Citizen Award. There were three nominations, all of whom were felt to be very worthy. After considerable discussion the Council decided that this year’s award should be made to Mr. Noel Elliott. The Council also felt that Cllr Moore should, in presenting the Award to Mr. Elliott, highlight the good work of the other nominees, Mesdames Enid Smith and Lyn Newby
c. Planters in villages. It was decided to defer this to the next meeting.
Item 7 Date of next meeting:
Monday 13th August 2018 in Goldsithney Village Hall (St. Piran’s Hall) at 1915 hours
Item 8 Correspondence, telephone calls and other reports:
a. Receive and approve Vaughan Glover’s playground reports for June. These having been previously circulated, were noted and approved.
b. West Penwith Community Network Panel. The next meeting is on 19th July
c. Highways Projects Expression of Interest. Cllr Nicholas explained a bit about this. She felt that average speed cameras in Rosudgeon would be a good idea, but that wouldn’t pass the “benefit for all” test. She said that Mrs. Sue James CC had mentioned mobile, solar-powered, speed monitors, but these cost a four-figure sum to move. Another suggestion had been to use the money to employ an extra Traffic Enforcement Officer, dedicated to working in the Community Network area.
d. Cornwall Council. Nothing to report
Footpaths & Rights of Way: Cllr Griffiths reported that CORMAC had not yet undertaken any cutting, not even of “gold” paths, and that complaints were, accordingly, coming in. He will brief Cllr Nicholas and the clerk on the footpaths in question so that Cllr Nicholas can take the matter up with CORMAC, as can the clerk on behalf of the Parish Council
To receive advance notice of items for the next meeting’s Agenda:
a. Plans for St. Piran’s Hall
b. Planters in Village
Item 11 Financial & Confidential Matters:
a. Receive and approve Bank Reconciliation Statement as at 6th July 2018. This having been previously circulated, was noted and approved. The clerk is to e-mail Cllrs Jago and Tremelling to suggest some dates for them top perform an internal audit.
b. Receive and approve GDPR policy document, Privacy Notices, Consent form and Data Asset audits. These having been previously circulated, were noted and approved.
c. Receive and approve quarterly budget report to 30th June 2018. This, having been previously circulated, was noted and approved.
